    I just got mine a couple of weeks ago - pretty happy with it so far. Thought it might be a bit to large, but I got used to the size quickly. My 920 seems small now to me.

    Just a piece of advice
    When you remove or place the backplate
    be careful with the smal edges above the buttons.
    They break or tear easely.

    How do you like the phone?

    I absolutely luv it yo... Just got one minor annoyance...lack of backlit keys..but it minor.. I had a scare with it earlier today though..

    While setting up and installing apps to my SD card, the phone kept freezing.. Had to do multiple restarts etc.. At one time the phone got so blazing hot it shut off and wouldn't turn back on for about 15mins. I got a little worried cause it seemed to be getting hotter. So I removed the sim card and SD card and place it in front a fan..๐Ÿ˜ After the 15mins the phone began to cool.. It cooled completely down in about 10secs. .. I used a laptop to scan and repair errors on SD card.. Then tried again and it booted normally without issue..My battery was nearly depleted after that incident. I re-inserted both sim and SD card.. Plugged in the charger and I monitored the temperature for a few minutes..when all seemed well, I resumed setting up. I noticed that a number of apps wouldn't install to the SD. And I'm not referring to apps that are not allowed to. These were apps that can. So I opted to install apps on internal storage and store media on SD card.

    Thinking back I think I have an idea of what happened. The SD card had errors and the phone was stuck in some sort of process trying to write to the SD. Even after turning the phone off, whatever rogue process was still taxing the CPU. Hence the increasing temperature. I guess when the phone was able to kill the rogue process it finally cooled down. The culprit seems to be my SD card. I realized that this device is sensitive with SD cards.

    Other than that.all is well..this phone is huge..my Samsung ATIV S feels so tiny now...lol. It's zippy..smooth, screen is good. Not the best but not bad either. The battery is the killer feature here.. It's a beast. Build quality is nicer than I thought. It's a well built device. Easy to hold and comfortable. I got the white model...so its great to look at it too..lol. Updated to Cyan and I'm all set up and running.. I don't think I can go back to a smaller screen device..lol.

    Just a question or two...
    How is the size of the phone? I'm a back pocket of the jeans guy, any discomfort in putting the phone in a pocket?
    Also do you have large, med, or small hands?? I am med size, which is to say I can't palm a basketball, or small fingers on a med palm.

    I am also coming from a Nokia 1020 and want the bigger screen as my old eyes are failing me. If I now bump up the text size for sms and whatsapp the message bubbles look weird on the smaller screen. How does texting look with all that screen?????

    Also I am glad you like your new phone !!!!! I hope it serves you well over the coming years !!!

    I have the phone most of the time in my front pocket ( normal jeans ). Backpocket has already cost me a phone hahaha
    The only discomfort is wen driving a car, its a kind of a nutbuster then ;)
    For the messaging application its a great size. My eyesight is also not that great any more, thats the main reason why i chose a 6 incher.

    Size of the phone is actually quite good. I have what one would call medium hands (well by men's size) and its not too difficult maneuvering the device. I've moved around with it in my back pocket but never I a sitting position..that's just a sure way to break your phone. Lol. Front pocket is cool. Well given one does not over do it with the skinny jeans. Even though the screen is a massive 6", the ppi is only around 245ppi.. So text and in your case messaging apps, scales well. It's not tiny to strain your eyes. Chat bubbles are an adequate size.. My eyes are perfect so I'll prefer if chat bubbles were a little smaller..but its not a deal breaker for me.

    Here a chatpage of Whatsapp
    It looks the same on every phone, only a tiny big larger.
    You know you can resize the fonts?

    Thank you for a screen grab !!!
    Yes I know I can adjust the font size in settings. I have tried it on the 1020 and it has helped some, but like I said the chat bubbles just become weird.

    Thus the need to have a bigger screen, and as the 1520 will not work with Wind here in Canada, the 1320 is my next option. I will then just use my 1020 as a Camera and Music Player.

    The 1520 the next big thing.
    Why isn't supported?
    But from what i heard and read is that the screen from the 1320 is brighter and runs longer on a battery load.
    The only thing what i like better is the camera. ;)
